Today I'm sharing my page for the Let's Get Trendy workshop.
The scrapbook trend I'm covering is a definite favorite- NEON! Woo hoooo!
There are other fantastic projects (including gorgeous cards and two sketches) on the Let's Get Trendy blog please swing by and check those out.
I love neon and I tend to go overboard when using it.
I make no apologies for this.
But it leads to pages that are certainly out there even for me.
I know the going wisdom is that you should use neon sparingly.
I've seen many gorgeous pages and cards made with just a hint- a touch - a zing- of neon.
I'm not part of that party.
I say slap it on, slather it all over and have fun with excess.
Viva the Las Vegas GLITZ of it all!
washi tapes (especially since they can be layered)
glitter (go. all. the. way!)
chalk bistro markers (these are how Starbuck's gets perfect chalkboard menus)
acrylic paints- there are so many of these- you can go with high end Guache water color or a kid's set from Ikea
Two of my current favorites:
|Liquitex acrylic spray paint. Expensive and has a tendency to clog but still AWESOOOME!!!|
Micheals' carries it.
It's usually locked in a cage to keep crafty teens from defacing the world with it. (snicker, snicker)
Whenever something makes you uncomfortable I say WORK IT
Get out of that comfort zone!
You might just like swinging through the jungle growing outside.
Have a GREAT (colorful) week!
